Olly Murs will front his own one-off musical show currently under the working title of A Night With Olly Murs.
The one-hour entertainment special will see Olly performing hits such as Dear Darlin’, Heart Skips a Beat and selections from his new album Never Been Better including new single Wrapped Up. He will be accompanied by a live band and will be joined by some celebrity guests.
Aside from the music there will be amusing moments including some famous-face photobombings and Olly delivering a prank on one of his former co-hosts. He will also be paying a visit to a famous soap set, bumping into one of its well-known residents and appearing in his own scene, filmed especially for his show.
Talking about the show Olly said, ‘I am so excited about doing my first TV special, it’s going to be an amazing night. The show will be great fun, packed with off the wall comic segments, surprises and, of course, music.’
Peter Davey, Commissioning Editor, Entertainment, ITV, said, ‘Olly has been one of The X Factor’s biggest successes and we’re delighted to welcome him back to ITV for his own special show.’
A Night With Olly Murs will be broadcast later in the Autumn.
